At age 55, I began to experience symptoms: nausea and vomiting, stomach pain, bloating, a half dozen swollen leg tissue spots the size of silver dollars, swollen ankles, discolored toes, fatigue, abnormal elimination, insomnia, loss of appetite, and the inability to eat many foods. A glass of cold water would hurt my stomach. My ankles ached so much that I took advil just to get out of bed and walk. That first month, august 2002, I lost 10 pounds and in september I lost another 5. I was slim to begin with but now at 5’9” and 120 pounds, I looked gaunt.

After weeks of testing with multiple specialists, I was informed that I was suffering from a moderately severe case of crohn’s – and other related problems. Being a non-smoker, non-junk food, no operations (still have my tonsils!), balanced diet with vitamin pills, regular exercise person, I did not expect to be so sick so young. But here I was, taking asacol, prednisone, and pentasa to help me function.

My drug regime failed me. I was still half sick and now experienced side effects – joint pain and weakness. So the doctor increased the asacol 400mg/each from 9 pills per day to 12 pills per day. When that didn’t help, I want up to 16 pills per day. I remained half sick. I suffered like this for 5 months, planning everything I did around bathroom breaks and boxes of crackers. I continued to be uncomfortable and got out of bed 4-5 times each night. My intestines were so swollen that any pressure on them, even my hand, would hurt. I was cutting away the stomach area on my nylons because the pressure was uncomfortable! I could barely perform at work, had no strength to do house work, and was no longer cooking or eating well.

My breaking point came at christmas 2002 with a house full of relatives; my son was home visiting for 2 weeks and I as sick every day. My health continued to decline. I told my husband that I had no quality of life and that I had no intention of ruining his future. I told my employer that I could no longer function, apologized profusely, and walked of the job without notice. I began to sort through my belongings, tossing old letters and taking a load of things to goodwill so that no one else would have to do the same.

My husband searched the internet for alternatives, found molo-cure research, and placed an order for “a.M.P. Molo-cure” that we received on january 5, 2003. I carefully followed all the instructions and noticed improvements in 5 days. I weaned myself off all other medications and continued to feel better.

All but one of my symptoms disappeared and the one left to conquer is minor. I resumed work and I am once again living a normal healthy life. I regained 10 pounds and my energy level and zest for life returned. At this point, I could probably qualify for the molo-cure maintenance program. But I feel so normal that I must admit I am slipping on the diet. I still avoid spicy, deep-fried, most heavy sweets, or any foods that may cause problems. But I just can’t seem to resist key lime pie, corn on the cob, a glass of burgundy with dinner, a beautiful salad, and fruit with the skin on. Well,

I have always been a conservative, following the rules, not taking chances especially with medications. This is the first time that I am not following the doctor’s orders. It’s sad that many of our healthcare professionals do not recommend “a.M.P. Molo-cure” because I realize that so many other people are still needlessly suffering as severely as I once did. I urge others to take a chance on regaining health beyond their expectations. And I urge others to save their money. My prescription costs were considerably higher.

My name is Rosey. I Am 28 years old and had the Gastric Bypass Surgery when I was 19. I read your post and was left speechless as I am now going through the exact same issues. But I am also suffering sever Gastric symptoms as well. I can’t put pressure on my stomach or I get the wind knocked out of me and I feel the gases comming up from my stomach. On top of that my chest is always tight so I am constantly taking my Asthma meds. I feel as if my life is deteriorating fast and I am so scared. I have two small children that I don’t want to leave behind, 9 ad 3 year olds. My doctors have sent me for a CT Scan of the stomach that is scheduled next week and they are thinking I may have a hernia. Once I am done with this they will send me for an endoscopy. I am praying that they hurry and find something as I am tired of feeling this way. I would just really like to hear some more from you because it sounds like we have experienced the same things. You went through it and I am going through it now. I hope to hear from you soon.
